The Velo Club Cumbria 50 mile event on Sunday was the venue for this seasons 50 mile championships. It’s been a long wait for racing to resume on L courses, but my word there were some great performances.
Rebecca Rimmington of Team Merlin and Tom Rigby of Croston Velo are your 50 mile champions for 2020. Rebecca recorded a fabulous time of 1:56:34 which is also a new NLTTA Ladies record. Tom recorded a very fast 1:41:03 which is also another NLTTA record for the Men.
The Team Champions are Velo Club Cumbria winning a close battle with Fogarty’s Insurance Tri Team by just 39 seconds (5:33:51).
Next up is the Wigan Wheelers 10 on Levens (15 August), the event chosen to host this years 10 mile championships.
